This inspiration piece was right up my alley! I loved the blue, green, white, and kraft color scheme, which I paired with some touches of pink and yellow to coordinate with my photos. The leaves stamp inspired me to cut some leaves from a piece of patterned paper. I also incorporated rounded corners into my layout as well.
